christmas eve in washington

by - 2:32 PM

an itinerary in two parts. 

Ring in 2017 with a heavy brunch of doughnuts and fried chicken at Astro Doughnuts.

Astro Doughnuts & Fried Chicken at 308 G St NW 

 Among the delicious offerings : maple bacon, bourbon eggnog, and pb&j. As with most bakeries, seasonal flavors tend to change.

Once you've had your fill (and have reached the brink of cardiac arrest) make your way towards the newly renovated Renwick Gallery and check out the current exhibitions.

Make your way over to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and take a tour of the White House (if you're lucky enough to win the ticket lottery). I was able to score a pair of tickets for New Year's Eve. The tour takes 45 minutes and is self-guided, which takes off any pressure of time contraints. Move at your own pace and take as long (or as little) as you want admiring the many chandeliers.
